"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

3 eggs
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. pumpkin
1 tsp. lemon juice
3/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. ginger
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 tsp. salt

1 c. powdered sugar
1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
4 T. butter
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/3 c. pecans, if desired

Beat eggs on high speed 5 minutes. Gradually beat in sugar. Stir in pumpkin and lemon juice. Combine and sift flour and remaining dry ingredients (except the nuts). Fold the flour mixture into the pumpkin-egg mixture.
Spread in a 15X10 pan or a 12X18 pan, lined with wax paper. Bake for 10-15 minutes at 375. Loosen edges with a knife, then turn onto a towel sprinkled with powdered sugar. Roll towel and cake together.
Combine all filling ingredients and beat until fluffy. Unroll cake and spread filling over cake. Top with nuts, if desired. Roll cake up again and chill.
Cut each slice of cake and sprinkle with cinnamon before serving. Makes 14-16 servings.
